8:01 pm
at the bafta tv awards. and the travel show goes to colombia to explore the legacy of one of its most controversial criminals. good evening and welcome to bbc news. the head of the european union's law enforcement agency says the hackers who targeted organisations including the nhs on friday have put out a new version of their cyber attack. rob wainwright, the head of europol, said there were now 200 thousand victims of the cyber attack around the world — and more could be affected as computers are turned on tomorrow morning. seven nhs trusts in england are still affected, with patients being warned about further disruption in coming days. here's our health editor hugh pym. it was the biggest ever attack
8:02 pm
on health service it systems. today, staff at those hospitals caught up in the disruption were doing their best to get up and running. but the nhs was one victim of a global cyber assault and europe's police agency says the scale of the problem is unprecedented and it could get worse. this will be sitting in systems over the weekend in systems not been used and when people arrive for work on monday morning and turn on their computer, we will see the numbers going up again. but questions are being asked about whether nhs it security was adequate. some trusts are still using an outdated operating system, windows xp. ministers said there had been investment. we are spending around £50 million on the nhs cyber systems to improve security. we have encouraged the nhs trust to reduce their exposure to the weakest since them, windows xp. less than 5% of the trust use
8:03 pm
that system any more. york hospital's computers were affected but they were not using the old system and they were using security patches to protect against viruses. we are applying patches provided by our providers. we are in a large system and we take our responsibilities seriously. labour has written to the health secretary calling for a detailed explanation and today the party went on the attack. the government's handling of this crisis has been chaotic. we have warned the government's attitude to cyber security in the nhs was complacent. they have cut the infrastructure budget so the nhs could not put the money it needed into securing its it systems. i am afraid the chickens
8:04 pm
are coming home to roost. labour says if elected, it will invest billions of pounds in the nhs to upgrade it systems and modernise hospitals and other buildings. england's largest nhs trust which includes the royal london hospital was one of those hardest hit. the it systems are still not running normally. managers say a certain number of appointments and routine operations will go ahead tomorrow. but some ambulances are still being diverted. for this hospital and a few others, this unprecedented disruption is not over yet. hugh pym, bbc news. doctor herb lin is a cyber security expert and fellow at stanford university. he joins me now on webcam from san francisco. welcome to bbc news. how is it that this cyber attack was able to create so this cyber attack was able to create so much chaos in so many parts of the world? the nature of the attack
8:05 pm
was that it it was what experts call a warm, it is self propagating and does not require a human intervention for it to spread. so it is not individuals clicking on a link that caused the infection to go even further? that is right. it sta rts even further? that is right. it starts with one individual doing it. some place where it all started, but once that took hold, it was able to find other unprotected systems and infect them. what do governments need to do, as well as businesses to ensure that organisations do not suffer in this way again? well, this particular worm or a piece of malware more generally, used a vulnerability that was patched by microsoft about two months ago. the fa ct
8:06 pm
microsoft about two months ago. the fact that a large number of installations have not chosen to installations have not chosen to install the patch, itjust is bad cyber security hygiene. it is the equivalent of not washing your hands after uup or something like that. how likely is it that we will see more? so many computers are vulnerable that might give other hackers the idea to try the same thing? the success of this worm seems to point to a successful model, we may indeed see other people not copying necessarily the same code but the same approach, finding another way to make money from this. can you completely protect your system ? from this. can you completely protect your system? no, you can never completely protect your system
8:07 pm
by you can do things that make it much harderfor the bad guy, make it harderfor much harderfor the bad guy, make it harder for the much harderfor the bad guy, make it harderfor the bad guy and they much harderfor the bad guy, make it harder for the bad guy and they will be able to do it less to you. now this attack happened on friday and a lot of people in many parts of the world have not been working over the weekend, what might be the effect when people turn up for work tomorrow morning and turn on their computers? i think the story that was previously broadcast had it right, people will be turning on the computer ‘s do not have a clue what is going on and they will turn on computers that are unprotected, the worm will find them and they will be infected. i think it is quite likely that there will be a spike of new infections tomorrow. on monday, rather. how much better are the authorities getting at tracking down the people responsible? well, i don't know anything about the details of this particular case. in general, the authorities are getting better at this, but the bad guys are also getting better at this and it
8:08 pm
isa also getting better at this and it is a cat and mouse kind of game, where if the bad guys make a mistake, then the authorities are going to be ready to pounce on them and if the bikers do not make a mistake, it will be impossible to find them. thank you very much for joining us. thank you. and we'll find out how this story — and many others — are covered in tomorrow's front pages at 10:30 and 11:30pm this evening in the papers — our guests joining me tonight are rob merrick, deputy political editor at the independent and the broadcaster and author, natalie haynes. nurses are promising a summer of protest across the uk and possible industrial action. members of the royal college of nursing at their annual conference in liverpool are calling on the next government to end years of below—inflation pay increases. but a ballot will be needed, before any strike goes ahead. our health correspondent, jane dreaper is at the conference. it has been a day of intense emotion
8:09 pm
here in the conference debate this morning. some of the speakers and also people in the audience were in tea rs also people in the audience were in tears as they talked about the effect of the years of pay freezes and capped pay rises and what they feel that has done to them and their family incomes. with me to discuss this is the man who proposed the resolution this morning, the chairman of the royal college of nursing ‘s counsel, michael brown. michael, what exactly is it that you wa nt michael, what exactly is it that you want to do? is this summer of discontent? the feeling in the hall this morning and emotion that you mentioned cannot be ignored. we carried out that paper and told us that members are feeling really undervalued at this moment in time and want to show which of government we have in the future that this cannot be ignored. patients are going to be really worried when they hear about nurses protesting. we have already seen the havoc that a cyber attack can cause on hospitals and the disruption in terms of
8:10 pm
cancelled appointments. they will be worried when they hear about this proposed action. let us be clear, out proposed action. let us be clear, ourargument and proposed action. let us be clear, our argument and dispute is not with patience and not with the public and in fact, we are going to strive to bring patience and the public along with us. we are a long way from taking industrial action. we have been listening to our members and we want the government to respond to us and to listen to what nurses are telling us what they have been saying today. will it really come to industrial action or is this a bit of an empty threat? it is this a bit of an empty threat? it is not. in the proposal, we said we would be responsible and give the next government of the uk the
8:11 pm
opportunity to end public sector pay restraint. if the new government continues to fail to listen to the hardship of nurses, we will proceed to industrial action. but your members get incremental rises on top of the pay rise because of progressing in thejob, don't of the pay rise because of progressing in the job, don't they? in 2004, up a progressive system was introduced in the nhs for nursing and other people, that pay progression starts people at the starting point of the job and over a period of five years they progress to what is the true value of that job. is their appetite among your members, this is a conference where we hear lots of fire and anger from the delegates, but back around the country, is the really the appetite, only i9% responded to a consultation about this. what we entered into a few weeks ago was listening exercise with our members after hearing stories of hardship and arguments that they were no longer happy with nhs pay. this wasjust that they were no longer happy with nhs pay. this was just a that they were no longer happy with nhs pay. this wasjust a small survey, what happened today was the next steps of taking that forward and we now need to go out and talk to all our members and all the people out there and find out what their views are. this does certainly represent a significant hardening of the union position, but how this will play out in the coming months
8:12 pm
in terms of protests and possibly marches outside hospitals, we will have to wait and see. german chancellor angela merkel‘s christian democrats party have unseated their key elections rivals, the social democrats in local elections in germany's most populous state. exit polls for the north rhine—westphalia show mrs merkel‘s party with a projected share of 34—point—five percent of the vote, ahead of the social democrats on 30—point—five percent. the vote was seen as a test for the german chancellor, who faces a general election in september. earlier i spoke to our correspondent in berlin, damien mcguinness and he explained to me what these election results could mean for angela merkel and her christian democratic party. well i think we have to remember that in the regional elections it is primarily —— primarily regional policies like policing, hospitals, schools and transport, those are all
8:13 pm
controlled and run by regional governments. regional governments here are incredibly important. but this particular state does have an impact nationally and on the national elections in four months and in that sense, on angela merkel‘s chances as remaining chancellor and that is because this election, this region is an spd central stamp polls. angela merkel‘s challenger, the leader of the ce ntre—left challenger, the leader of the centre—left was banking on hanging on to the state and getting a good solid left—wing majority in this state and he said that explicitly and he said that would help him on his way to berlin, that has not happened, that was not of the party expected and that has been a real blow for mrs merkel and her rivals to their chancellery in september and that is why this is a severe, a real blow for it the spd centre—left and rivals and a clear statement of
8:14 pm
confidence in a way for mrs merkel, because it really strength —— strengthens her party and it means that going, as they struck the run—up to the election is now in september, it is making her look stronger than ever. polls are looking good and she is seen as a safe pair of hands and so far, there is really know when to beat her because this main rival that was facing her is now looking severely weakened by the regional election results today. damian mcguinness in berlin. emmanuel macron has been sworn in as president of france, promising in his inaugural address to bring about a cultural and economic renaissance and rejuvenate the country. the 39 year old former investment banker swept to power after forming his own political movement. 0ur europe correspondent damian grammaticas watched the ceremony in paris. not since france had an emperor 200 years ago, as it had a leader this young. 39 years old and inaugurated president today of one of the world's most powerful nations.
8:15 pm
emmanuel macron has seized his opportunity, propelled by a young man's self—confidence and some political good fortune. the disillusion that has fuelled populism elsewhere, has led france to back a newcomer, but one squarely in the centre ground. emmanuel macron routed the traditional parties. the outgoing president, francois hollande, leaves office as france's most unpopular leader of modern times. but the task in front of mr macron is huge. if this business friendly liberal is to honour his pledge to transform france. translation: all labour laws will be liberalised, companies will be supported. innovation and creativity will be at the heart of my programme. the french feel left behind by globalisation
8:16 pm
and will be better protected. to achieve that, mr macron needs a majority in parliament, but his new party has no mps and elections are in four weeks' time. emmanuel macron has promised this moment will mark a decisive break from the past for france, a moment of national renewal where all his predecessors have promised reform and failed to deliver. he will need more than useful to optimism and energy to succeed. what mr macron hopes he can make it a force at the heart of the eu, say those who know him. translation: he will relaunch the eu. if the british were still members, they would be part of this, but we will do this without them. it is on the basis that countries who want to cooperate further, will. for france and europe, much rests on some very young shoulders.
8:17 pm

8:18 pm
league. they lost 4— 02 crystal palace at selhurst park. hull were four points behind crystal palace on swa nsea four points behind crystal palace on swansea and knew it was win or bust but palace just needed a draw to survive and a win for them keep them up survive and a win for them keep them up while hull head back to the championship at the first time of asking. we are sorry for our fans. of course, it is not a good moment for the club. now is the moment the clu b for the club. now is the moment the club will take the next step. it is ha rd to club will take the next step. it is hard to understand why this happened. why the club had many problems this season. of course, today, we came here to play well and we did not start in the right way. they were comfortable and they got what they wanted for the match. there is no doubt that the new
8:19 pm
players arriving in january made a massive effort and a massive difference as well. that lifted all the other players here and for me, it is the hardest one i have done because of the fixtures that we had to face going into the last eight or nine games and to come out of those fixtures with a win against chelsea away, liverpool away and arsenal at home, if you see what arsenal have done now since that victory, it shows you how big a task it was for us shows you how big a task it was for us and in the end, we have done with a game to go, i am glad to say. after more than a century at white hart lane, tottenham hotspur say goodbye with a 2—1 win victory over manchester united. spurs are raised the disappointment by going the whole season unbeaten at home for the first time in 52 years. adam wilde has more. after 118 years, this was tottenham fans last lingering look at the stadium. capturing some final memories of this famous old ground. while spurs do face a bright future, this was a
8:20 pm
day to honour at the club's past. there could have been no more perfect way to start than an early goal. it came from victor wanyama on an afternoon with already plenty to celebrate, here was just one more reason. why is the result was perhaps secondary to the occasion, the chance of victory over manchester united is always incentive enough. spurs are unlucky not to have gone further ahead before the break, dele alli one of many to go close. still on a day when the club remembers its greatest heroes, here was harry kane reminding fans that he may one day be counted amongst them. the final spurs goal at white hardening, not the final goal, that went to wayne rooney, with his future still uncertain, fittingly a farewell of sorts from him as well. spurs hang on to complete a whole league season unbeaten at the ground, that was now their past. still a club with plenty
8:21 pm
to look forward to. adam wilde, bbc news. at the same time, we welcome the new stadium. we need to move on. i think we will be very happy in a yea r‘s i think we will be very happy in a year's time to play at the new ground. imagine the celebrations, will you try and take anything from the ground as a memento? we will see what we can take and keep in our house. liverpool have given their hopes of qualifying for the champions league a huge boost. daniel sturridge scored his first premier league goal since january getting their first premier league goal since january getting theirfirst in premier league goal since january getting their first in a 4—0 win over west ham which takes them third in the table. victory against middlesbrough would guarantee them a place in the champions league next season. lewis hamilton has moved to within six points of the championship leader sebastien vettel
